The principles of powerful, artful storytelling haven’t changed. But the means of evaluating them in play within a story certainly have.
Story Coaching 2.0
Empower Your Process
Four levels of service.
Each facilitated by an enhanced, genre-specific Questionnaire that goes deep into your story and your vision for it.
Don’t spend thousands of dollars having your full manuscript evaluated, when a few hundred dollars gets you the exact same outcome and value.
Save a year of your life writing a draft that was compromised out of the gate.
Dramatically improve the chances of your full draft with a final evaluation of its most critical working parts.

Level 1 – The Quick Hit Concept Analysis… $49
Concept and Premise are to blame for at least half of the rejections that occur among newer writers. The story itself, even with stellar execution, is just not strong enough at it’s core to move an agent or editor to take it on.
It’s one of the most common of many ways to weaken a story. You can’t write your way out of this, correction is required at the highest level of conceptual intention. In many cases writers don’t even understand what a concept is, or how it differs from premise. This is a story-killer, one you can now avoid.
This service examines your concept in context to five key criteria for a compelling story, and suggests a direction for revision if necessary.
Hands down, this is the most dramatic price-to-value service in the history of story coaching. Price reduced from its prior format, with enhanced value through a myopic focus on the inherent power of your concept.
Turnaround is a maximum of 72-hours (unless notified otherwise)
Level 2 – The Full Story Plan Review… $245
Concept and premise are only the beginning. When they aren’t the beginning, both must be retrofitted into a story developed without them. This level of evaluation looks at the major moving parts, connections and narrative layering as part of an overall story architecture, with a view toward optimizing character, dramatic tension, pace and the reading experience.
Level 3 – Full Story Plan with 1st Quartile Pages (approx. 100 pgs.)… $545
Add your Part 1/Act 1 first quartile pages for analysis of voice, flow and exposition. If it doesn’t work up front, you can’t save it later.
RUSH for Level 2 and Level 3 are available. See drop-down menu below for Basic and Rush options for both.
Level 4 – Full Manuscript Analysis (with Questionnaire)…. $1800*
I also offer traditional full draft analysis – rendered non-traditional by the inclusion of the Full Plan Questionnaire – at an accessible fee. The quote above assumes a maximum of 100,000 words. Email me to arrange scheduling and payment.
How the program works:
Use the Paypal buttons/menus here (no account required, credit cards accepted) or in the column to the left. Upon receipt I will send you a Welcome Kit, which includes the Genre-Specific Questionnaire for your chosen level of service.
Feedback will be sent to you within the stated time frame. Rush service is available at a slight upcharge.
One round of follow-up Q&A (for further explanation and clarification) is included. Revised submissions (because they entail the same level of work) entail the same fee.
Follow-up coaching (rendering any revisions recommended in the feedback) is available).
